Improving the effectiveness of your sustainability strategy
As a business or local government you want to become more environmentally sustainable, but how can you do that in the most effective way, making best use of your own money or grant funding?
It should be easy to be more sustainable, but the road of good intentions is paved with wrecks:
- Failed rainwater tank systems installed on community facilities such as kindergartens.
- Those energy audits generated so much excitement when they were undertaken… but so few of the recommendations were implemented.
- The ambition of becoming carbon neutral, but without a clear plan on how to get there and how to measure progress.
- Sustainability strategy budgets spent on tracking hundreds of electricity and water accounts to monitor performance, but no money and no people left over to improve performance.
- A rush at the end of the financial year to spend the remaining budget, meaning your focus is on spending budget, and not necessarily on outcomes.
